Fireside

Once a week at 5:30pm on Thursday Konstantine sits down with a guest to discuss an issue that he wants to highlight. The conversations are sometimes in French, sometimes in English and sometimes bilingual depending mainly on the preference of the guest. 

Topics have included Indigenous issues, autistic self-advocacy, francophone communities, the environment and so much more. 

Please enjoy the back catalogue of chats and if you would like to suggest a topic we'd love to hear from you.
